Description

The marble carving of the Metropolitan Museums Eternal Spring (19067) has a sensuous, veiled quality that creates an impressionistic play of light and shade on the surface, characteristic of the marbles of Rodins later career. Based on Auguste Rodin's (French, 18401917) original, our exquisite reproduction of Eternal Spring was created with a combination of three-dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques.

Art History

The sculpture group Eternal Spring by Auguste Rodin (French, 18401917), also known as Eternal Springtime, was probably modeled in 1881. Its initial title was Zephyr and Earth and it was exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1897 as Cupid and Psyche. Both titles were clearly calculated to lend respectability to the subjects eroticism, since the work brims with an awakening sensuality that implies neither guilt nor punishment. The sculpture was extremely popular, and Rodin repeated it often both in marble and in bronze.
